RALEIGH, N.C. (March 3, 2014) - Wake Technical Community College recognizes Kathy Spade, MSN, RN, CNE, for successfully completing the Certified Healthcare Simulation Educator (CHSE) certification exam. CHSE is administered by the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH). Spade is now one of only seven Certified Healthcare Simulation Educators in North Carolina, and 278 worldwide! 

Spade is an associate professor in Wake Tech’s highly-acclaimed nursing program and is the Lab Coordinator for the Nursing Simulation Suite at the Health Sciences Campus in Raleigh.  

“We’re proud of Associate Professor Spade,” says Dianne Hinson, Dean of Health and Sciences. “This professional recognition of her specialized knowledge, skills, and accomplishments in simulation helps bring a competitive edge to Wake Tech, its program offerings, and grant funding.” 

The Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH) seeks to improve performance and reduce errors in patient care through the use of simulation. Established in 2004 by professionals using simulation for education, testing, and research in health care, SSH membership includes physicians, nurses, allied health and paramedical personnel, researchers, educators and developers from around the globe. The CHSE program has been developed over a number of years with the input of individuals representing a wide variety of backgrounds and experience in healthcare simulation. 

The Association of Standardized Patient Educators (ASPE) and The International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning (INACSL) support the CHSE program.
